The Versatility of Dental Implants: And Why They Are the Best Restorative Dental Option

Dental Implants Are a Long-Term Solution to Your Missing Teeth Issues


Dental implants as we know them were developed in the 1950s. Since then dental implant technology has come a long way. The technology now available makes dental implants safe, sturdy and long-lasting, giving people more reason to get a dental implant procedure when they are missing a tooth.

Did you know that the Mayans 1400 years ago had a form of dental implant surgery? It involved hammering shells, animal bone and ivory into a person’s jaw. This was done in the hope of replicating the look and feel of a natural tooth.

The Dental Implant Procedure Today….

Today, no professionally trained dentist is going to hammer ivory into your jaw and hope for the best. No, luckily with today’s technology we can use anaesthetic first…

But seriously, with advances in modern technology, even the type of metal used for the implant is specifically designed to be more biocompatible with your jaw. This benefits the process because it drastically reduces the risk of infection and it means that your jaw and the implant will better fuse together.
The implant and the jaw fusing together is what creates such a strong and sturdy tooth root for the prosthetic tooth.

How North Shore Restorative & Implant Dentistry Can Restore the Feel and Function of Your Smile…

At North Shore Restorative & Implant Dentistry in Long Island we offer comprehensive dental implant treatment aimed at restoring the function and aesthetics of your smile.

Dental implants are the most versatile because they can be used not just for one missing tooth, but an entire mouth full of missing teeth—and any number of missing teeth in between.

Benefits of Dental Implants…

There are a number of benefits to getting the dental implant procedure, such as:

  • Restorations look and feel just like your natural teeth
  • Permanent solution to tooth loss
  • Prevent teeth on either side of the missing tooth from rotating to try and block the gap
  • Implants reduce jawbone deteriorating because they take the place of your tooth root

Our Range of Dental Implant Solutions…

At North Shore Restorative & Implant Dentistry we provide a range of dental implant options to suit your needs. Whether you’re missing one tooth or a mouthful at our Long Island dental practice we can help you.

The Three Treatments We Offer…

Our range of dental implant treatments are designed to help our patients restore the appearance and function of their smile.

1. Single Tooth Loss

If you are missing one tooth, dental implants are the best solution. Unlike bridges or dentures dental implants do not affect surrounding teeth.

2. Multiple Tooth Loss

Like single tooth loss, multiple tooth loss can faultlessly restore your missing teeth. Stronger and sturdier than dentures, dental implants replicate your natural teeth like no other prosthetic.

3. Total Tooth Loss

Thanks to advances in dentistry, we now can offer an effective, long term solution to total tooth loss. Dental implants offer patients the ability to smile, speak and eat like normal.
